Reviewed September 8, 2013

we stayed at Aveda Motor lodge as part of a conference group and it was lovely and clean, well appointed, well set out, and the staff were positive, helpful and I would definitely recommend this place to stay at. A fifteen minute walk to the township.

We had booked the Pukekohe motel that is over the road from here, but after one night we moved to the Aveda as it was so dirty and shabby.

The beds were not split on arrival but they were quickly split as we waited. Blankets and duvets felt new and luxurious. The whole place is quite new looking and furnished to a high standard. I would guess that it was recently renovated. Two beds in the main studio area with a small dining table and kitchenette with a microwave and fridge. There wasn't a freezer if I remember correctly as I remember throwing half a tub of ice cream away.

Its a fairly long walk into town but a short drive. There is a convenience store just up the road if you need a few bits.

Wifi is $7.50 per day for up to 1000gb, additional charges for extra. Free guest laundry.

Booked in here by my work I was a little skeptical of what I would find but was really, really impressed with both the service and the room. I was on the top floor (only two floors) and found it very clean, modern, roomy and was located just far enough out of town that you had a quick ride in but no noise.
The whole complex looks like it has recently been refurbished and the large kitchenette in my room was well set up and well stocked.
The bed was one of the most comfortable I have come across in my travels, and combined with the free digital channels and big, flat screen TV I hardly wanted to leave the room!
They also have laundry facilities for those needing to wash while they are away.
Would highly recommend for anyone wanting a comfortable, clean and pleasant stay - very good value.

Room Tip: Unlike most 'motel' type set ups the doors don't bang when you shut them so most rooms w...

I have to share with other travellers that seems to be the most modern and comfortable motel in Pukekohe. It's about 10 minutes walk from the centre of town but only a moment to drive if you have a car. The rooms are modern with flat screen televisions and heat pumps. The units are equipped with in room safes.
The décor is neutral shades. The beds are comfortable and modern duvet covers are provided to add extra warmth. On this trip I stayed in a ground level studio. WiFi is available for a fee if you require it.
There is ample car parking to cater for the motel guests.
The new owners of Aveda are friendly and welcoming.

I personally checked out all the Motels in and around Pukekohe - having lived there for years and suddenly needing a place to use as a base for a holiday. - and decided that this placed looked the best, in price and also style and room quality. I was not wrong. The rooms here are excellent, even by NZ standards which are generally very high. We were given a DVD player to hook up to our flat panel TV, and full internet access was available upon request. Our flatlet (what else can you call it - dining\living room, bedroom, huge bathroom, kitchen) was exceptionally well ordered, clean , modern and well decorated. The kitchen was well provisioned with utensils and all the usual cutlery, mugs, glasses, plates etc. The staff were like old friends by the end of our 2 week stay. If you don't mind a 10 minute walk, you can stroll into deepest Pukekohe and it's restaurants, Cafes and shops...if you have a car, you're only 7 or 8 minutes drive from the Southern Motorway on-ramp and then 15-20 minutes drive into Auckland central. Oh yes - you can park your car right outside your own front door. This is a very good, comfortable, up to date and friendly Motel and I recommend it very highly.

Room Tip: Ask for a DVD player, ask for Internet access - ask for whatever you need, you will be looked after.

I had a lengthy stay at the Aveda a few years back when visiting the nearby Hampton Downs and Pukekohe motor racing circuits. I returned for a one night stay when passing through recently and found that, although now under new management, the high standard accommodation provided by, Judy, the previous proprietor has been maintained. The motel is well equipped and spotlessly maintained
